Turnin' Tables 2: Electric Boogaloo

Sorry for the quiet patch, been bloody busy with interviewing new course applicants again. Good news is we're all done on that front so I can lavish you with audio again so without further ado lessgo:

Pam Glew - Mika (2011)

Remnants of my Cyberpunk binge remain as I am digging a bunch of soundtrack stuff.Yoko Kanno's reputation is well deserved in the soundtrack world, and her techy contributions to the Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex are pretty special, here's a taster with Monochrome:

It's not all distant techy stuff tho, as recently I've been giving what could be my favourite beat of all time a revisit. The tune that turned me onto Blockhead when I checked out the credits on Aesop Rock's Daylight EP, it's just as sweet without Aes's lyrical contributions:

And I've also been giving Games a fair spin. After exhausting the Ford & Lopatin album I've been revisiting their old EPs and Mixtapes. And Strawberry Skies is still as solid as it was on release, Lopatin must know I'm a sucker for his kind of synth sound, I fall in love with it every time.
